TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I am a retired public school teacher/literacy specialist with 30 years in Virginia and 10 years in Florida.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I don't believe in just one teaching style, especially after teaching for 40 years. A teacher must be flexible and be able to adapt to the needs of her/her students. I have a number of FREE read aloud videos that come with free download as a follow-up to the video. Check it out at http://www.topsthemonkey.com
